Army veteran Ronn Cantu had just finished a four-year contract on September 11, 2001. Feeling he had missed a real chance to serve his country, he reenlisted in 2003, anxious to go to war. As he waited impatiently to be shipped out he feared he had again missed his chance when Bush declared "mission accomplished" in May 2003--and once again when Saddam Hussein was captured in December of that year. But finally serving in Iraq (2004-05 and 2006-08), Ronn became increasingly skeptical and frustrated, realizing that the U.S. was there under false pretenses and "the only thing we were fighting for was to live one more day." Between tours he became active with IFAW. When a reporter phoned him in Iraq, his commanding officer at first forbade him to talk to the media, but soon rescinded that order, admitting "it is in fact your right." Ronn wants his active duty brothers and sisters to know that they do have a First Amendment right to dissent and still serve honorably.
